    Cause of event of Global amnesia ??

    The senario
    the person is normally non- alcoholic;

    over a two week period a bottle of red wine is consumed in small amounts

    a'memory laps' seems to occur with the individual' forgetting' to apply the car hand brake on three occassions

    over another two week period the individual consumes, again in small amounts each day, another bottle of red wine

    individual notices lapse of 'memory' in neglecting to pick up house keys on three separate occassions

    In this senario the BIG event then comes where the individual has total amnesia for about 6 hours

    In your view could these events be caused by the unusual alcohol intake ???
